Calculate display info like DPI and aspect ratio
Analyze any display. Input a few simple details and figure out the aspect ratio, DPI, and other details of a particular display. Great for deciding which laptop or external monitor to purchase, and if it would be considered HiDPI.
- Find out if a display is a good choice based on its size and resolution
- Get advice about different densities
- Learn the logical resolution
- Differentiate between laptops and desktop displays
- Stupid simple: all in a cute li'l window
Based my expertise and experience shipping HiDPI hardware and software at System76 and elementary.
Tells you if a display’s density is:
- Very Low DPI,
- Fairly Low DPI,
- Ideal for LoDPI,
- Potentially Problematic,
- Ideal for HiDPI,
- Fairly High for HiDPI, or
- Too High DPI
Made for elementary OS
Dippi is designed and developed on and for elementary OS. Purchasing through AppCenter directly supports the development and ensures instant updates straight from me. Get it on AppCenter for the best experience.
Flatpak versions may be made available on the Releases page, but these are intended for testing and will not get updates via Flatpak or your system's update mechanism. Versions of Dippi may have been built and made available elsewhere by third-parties; these builds may have modifications or changes and are not provided nor supported by me. The only supported version is distributed via AppCenter on elementary OS.
Developing and Building
If you want to hack on and build Dippi yourself, you'll need the following dependencies:
meson build to configure the build environment and run
ninja to build
meson build --prefix=/usr ninja -C build
To run automated tests, use
ninja -C build test
To install, use
ninja install, then execute with
ninja -C build install com.github.cassidyjames.dippi
